Dolomite & a Buncha Other More Shit: Oh No - "3 Dollars" (MF DOOM)
Haphazardly constructed around an old Rudy Ray Moore vocal sample, "3 Dollars" features MF DOOM's triumphant return to the mic... Rapping over a beat produced by the younger brother of his long-time friend/collaborator, Oh No [Madlib]. Over time, Michael Jackson has somehow managed to tediously de-construct and re-assemble a collection of tracks, which were generously inspired [sample] by 1970's Blaxopolitan film series, Dolomite. Oh No's previous albums were exclusively built around samples culled from Middle Eastern Psych Rock, Galt MacDermot, Ethiopian Funk-Jazz, and video games.
Five Day Weekend is prepping to release Oh No's latest album, cleverly titled "Ohnomite," this upcoming June 5th in conjunction with Stones Throw. Graphic artist Charles "Ques" Munka designed the colorful album cover, which showcases the rappers featured within: Guilty Simpson, MF DOOM, Phife Dawg, Erick Sermon, Rapper Big Pooh, Frank Nitt, M.E.D. and Roc Marciano. Munka also designed the image for "3 Dollars"' super-imposed 5-in. Oh No's new album is now available for pre-order over @ Stones Throw in a variety of formats: CD or 2LP, 5-in. single, and XL poster (double).
